Appliqué Crochet Patterns

Here are my appliqué crochet patterns - a small but growing collection of projects that gave me much pleasure to dream up!

For flower appliqués, check out my flower crochet patterns!

Basic Crochet Heart

Find out how to crochet this wonderful little heart shape!

It's the most popular pattern on my site :)

It's quite easy and ever so effective. You can add a little hanger if you like, and put it by your computer, on a backpack, in the car...

Or give some as gifts. My friends love 'em!

Pink crochet heart


Classic Crochet Heart Appliqué

Four rounds and two colors make up this lovely heart that has a picot point at the bottom.

All you need are two colors of the same yarn, although there's nothing to stop you working this in one color, of course.


2-Round Heart

A little circle of 6 sc (UK dc) then a second round of shaping.

Quick and easy-peasy!

Dark pink two round heart


My Tiny Crochet Heart

A sweet and satisfying one-rounder that I think you'll love to bits!

Add a bead to the picot at the bottom if you've got the "bead bug" - and don't they look jolly in lots of colors?


Picot Crochet Star

Two simple rounds make this beautiful star or cross shape.

Mine is worked in thread, which makes quite a small piece, ideal for a little ornamentation.

However, you can certainly use a heavier weight yarn if you prefer!


Pearly Picot Star

A six point star with pearl beads worked into a picot on each point.

My step-by-step written pattern and photo tutorial show you exactly how it's done.

I'm thrilled to present... my Silver Star!

He's got a lot of character and looks great on my bonsai which needs cheering up!

Follow the written pattern and/or the photos.

Find out how to tie your two yarn ends together nicely so you can hang your star up or attach it to a gift.

Steampunk Gear Wheel

Mixing a little industrial Victoriana and our sedately fabulous craft, here's a Steampunk-style gear wheel.

This example's in thread, and my tutorial features a gear worked in DK weight yarn - so you can work in whatever yarn suits you to make a coaster or decorative item.


An easy Crochet Butterfly Pattern

A pattern worked in one round with your two yarn ends snipped to make the butterfly's antennae! 

A great little project that you can complete in a few minutes.

Summer Sun

A jolly sun with eight sun rays.

You can add a chain to hang this up, too.

It starts with a magic ring, and it's really fun to make!

The Crochet Bike Appliqué

A fairly realistic bike, this, with handlebars that stick out on each side (you can make a flat version, too.)

Customize with a contrasting yarn to show off your spokes ;)

Add a brooch back and make a gift for your bike-mad friends.

A Penny Farthing Appliqué

A real penny and a real farthing... plus a crocheted version of the penny farthing bike!

One of those designs where I just wanted to produce a shape that, I hope, will bring a little Victorian fun into your lives!

Use for a vintage card or Victorian project.


Easy Lacy Shamrock Pattern

Just in time for St Patrick's Day, a quick and easy shamrock.

Make as an appliqué or chain together for a garland.
